I recently scored an M-Audio keystation49 in a thrift store. I use a PC and Sonar and since it's a controller, it can't receive messages for sound.

I've decided to give it to a friend who uses a Mac. She is a cellist and has been writing out arrangements But she would like to use her Mac and recently was given Finale. Or perhaps Garage Band. I don't think she's willing to buy Logic.

I would like to help her set it up but I've never used a Mac.

My question is: if she plugs in the M-Audio controller to the Mac via USB, will she be able to access the internal synth? If she uses garage band, will she be able to create MIDI files? Will she be able to hear what she's doing without an external MIDI player?

Pretty certain the answer is 'yes' to all your questions, Slab. Obviously, she should update everything her Mac will allow, first.

Yes. Check to see if that board needs an M-Audio Driver though for the MIDI.
